BTs on the Beach

Miley and Howie had a great 4th of July celebration at the beach this weekend. There was barbecue, swimming, fireworks, and best of all…

Boston Terriers on the Beach

The beach!

Miley has boundless energy. She could run up and down the beach for hours.

While Howie prefers to crash into the waves.

Time for a game of beach fetch!

It looks easy enough but…

Diving for the ball in all that sand is tricky! (Hint: She’s not even close. See the ball behind Howie’s feet??)

Faceplant!

Beach Fetch: Who can bring it back first? Howie tries to steal…

Denied.

That’s okay. *CHOMP!*

But Miley gets away!

Eat my dust, Howie!

*SLAM!* Howie executes a surprise body-check sneak attack!

Miley somehow manages to hang on to the ball!

He gives chase…

*SMACK!* I’ve seen UFC fighters take more pleasant hits than this! (And when I say UFC fighters, I mean Jon Favreau on Friends. *blush* “I know I’m no John Bon Jovi!” Nevermind.)

It’s just loose enough for Howie to get a grip…

He almost has it…!

Not so fast, little bro.

Then I take it and throw it again. Hehe. Beach fun!

This is Miley’s face when it’s time to go home.

We ♥ the beach! Thanks for looking! :)

I just love the pictures! I can never get action shots like that so clear!! And your commentary is awesome!!! Have you ever thought of doing a picture DVD to music with all of these great pictures? I make them for my kids and they love watching themselves, it’s like a scrapbook but you can watch it on your tv!! My family loves them too, and I enjoy making them.

OMG, what unfettered JOY with those two dogs! I felt like I was there, without the sunburn of course! I could feel the sand kicking up and the slobber on the ball. I loved the pic of Miley at the end — looking like a tantrum and a pout at the end of a very fun day. Thank you so much for sharing!

My favorite photo is the last one. . . exhausted after a long day of play! I have two Irish Water Spaniels who play the same way. Aren’t dogs great?

Love reading your blog Amanda and I’m always happy to see what your babies are up to. I used to have a silky/poodle, Tom, who looked like a silky. He never used to bark much. He would try and talk to me. This happens I think when you love them as much as I can see you love yours. I would love a camera like yours too. Your pictures are always so clear. Glad you had a great 4th of July.
Cheers from Australia.

Keep posting their fun time they are so sweet and funny. BTW I LOVE your blog and ck it daily. thanks for the giggles. Donna

I sent a link to this blog to a friend who is leading a push to allow Dogs on the beach on Tybee Island. Miley and Howie have become the poster children for the group….their frolicking on the beach is EXACTLY what the group is hoping for.
